  1. You do have a lot of stressers going on. Young kids & a puppy (may as well have a third kid) and a job is enough to make anyone tired! Add to that the fact that it does take time to heal. Your body is pulling as it heals and that alone will make you more tired. If your vit levels are ok, especially iron and b12 then, then work and kids are doing it!
  2. Agree - in U.S. it would NOT be considered safe.
  3. They should be quite safe. McCormick is a good company and properly lists all ingredients. Or you can just add your own pure spices and then no worries at all!
  4. Regular frozen veggies should all be quite safe. It's when you buy a mix (rice with peas and a flavor) that you run into a possible problem. Read the ingredient list. To be very safe buy a bag of any frozen veggie that has only that one ingredient - peas (or corn or whatever veggie it is)
  5. I have not found a coffee to have gluten in it. Other ingredients yes such as flavoring that could bother your tummy just because, but not gluten. That said, always read the ingredient list.
  6. I would tend to look at the ingredients in your artificial peanut extract and the chocolate syrup. Something there probably bothered you.
  7. As Kareng said, it is the cross contamination that will get you every time. The reason for the small pizzas is that the dough comes from the g.f. manufacturer usually frozen and is kept separate. So with that you are safe. Get to know your local pizza place. Ours changes gloves, takes the g.f. dough to a total separate area and uses total separate toppings, etc. Pizzas are cooked in the same oven but on a specially lined dish and on a separate shelf. My reason for not eating salad bar any place - tongs, toppings and children who self help. People at salad bars are sloppy and may use tongs/spoons for several toppings and contaminate those that were safe. Add to that salad prepared at a pizza place, well, too much chance for accidents.
  8. Since moving to Central Oregon we eat out more than in the past, mainly because we have to drive 30 minutes to get to the next "big" town and like to indulge in a lunch out. That said, we have found more and more places that offer a separate gluten free menu which makes it so much easier. Even when ordering off of the g.f. menu I always state "I am ordering from the g.f. menu and this is an allergy, not a choice for me!." I learned to do this the hard way. We have friends who are gluten intolerant and are not at all careful. They will order from a g.f. menu and then ask for a side of something that obviously has gluten in it. I want to be sure the kitchen takes ME seriously!
  9. Be sure and try some Star fruit & Ono fish!!!
  10. Based on the list of ingredients on these types of drinks I would not recommend them to anyone, celiac or not. They are full of stuff that is just plain not good for you
  11. I eat out but only if they offer a gluten free menu. I do question the server as to how the food is prepped. If they can answer my questions with some intelligence then I will take a chance. I always say "I do have a food allergy. Gluten Free is not a choice for me". Most places understand the word "allergy". I usually order something fairly simple especially if the place is busy. Simple helps keep any mistakes a little less.
  12. That's hard. You can try the "I come to be social," "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable. I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy. Do go, have fun. Don't let food stop you. Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it.
  13. Agree! That is a difficult spot to be in. I have a friend who insists she can cook for me. I have tried the "I come for the company, not the food", "I am celiac.." etc. I finally gave up and said "I love you but no!". It's very hard. Very hard! But stay strong.
  14. I never ate at the fair but always "rewarded" myself with a nice glass of wine at the wine and beer patio! The corn on the cob might be ok but I have to agree with the poster who mentioned that stuff at the fair probably isn't terribly clean. Stuff your purse with snacks and enjoy. My partner would feel bad about eating in front of my and I would just - I don't feel bad so that's your problem, not mine! lol
  15. Bob's processes the gluten free items in a separate facility
